Rein in your idiots, gay activists
Don't push this too far, gay men. There's a reason why gay men were brutally repressed in every society until the Western Societies of the past 20 years -- the potential forces of violence arrayed against you are infinitely greater than anything you can muster.

Everything you enjoy now is "dependent on the kindness of strangers" Stay tolerant to get tolerance. You may have pushed things as far as they can go. If so, live with it. If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you.

History fail. Rome and Greece. You lose.

> Stay tolerant to get tolerance.

In other words intolerance is an excuse for intolerance. Wasn't there one religious leader who was not very big on that whole "eye for an eye" thing? I believe he also said that only one who is really entitled to start hostilities (throw the first stone, so to speak) should be the one who's innocent and without sin.

If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you.

So you're admitting that the only reason you don't beat the shit out of gay people is because Religion holds you on a leash? And they call this love.

It might not restrain the bigots that beat up gay people but I'm pretty sure that the police and the courts might have something to say about it.

He's right you know, just be grateful that Brian has had the generosity of spirit to no longer actively hunt down, dowse in kerosene and set fire to every single homosexual.

Seriously it's so intolerant to want the same basic human, civil and political rights as everyone else!!!!!ONE!!11!!

Brian, if you were really serious about what you said, wouldn't it be equally valid that we ask your side to "rein in its idiots"?

Surely you haven't forgotten the murder of Dr. George Tiller, or the shooting in that UU church, or the Branch Davidians, or the Oklahoma City bombing, or protesters showing to tea parties with ASSAULT RIFLES...

Oh wait, to your side the ones who did this are the good guys. So much for "tolerance". Has anyone told you you're a total douchebag?

Apparently the kindness of strangers is not kind enough. And if we just lie down like doormats to be tolerant of an intolerant religion, then this will be as far as we will go. Being tolerant of backwards, outdated beliefs isn't always the best way to go.

I don't think Thebes agrees with you.
Or Egypt.
Or, y'know, history and reality in general.

A prime example of the failure of getting an education.

Yeah! Because Jesus said to brutally repress and be violent against gays and.....oh, wait.....

Wait, wait! Religion is against violence?

"If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you."

Are you kidding? Ever heard of Dr. Tiller? That's what we get from your version of religion---not restraint, but incitement, The institution we use to restrain violence is secular law.

Rein in your bigots, Christianists!

Don't push this too far, idiots. There's a reason why Christianists brutally oppress gay people in many (not all) societies, until gays in Western Societies since the late 1960s began to challenge the tangible forces of violence arrayed against them. But the determination of gay people not to accept anything less than full equality is infinitely greater than anything Christianists can muster.

Everything you enjoy now is the result of your efforts and the kindness of those who are not bigoted about recognising your rights. Stay tolerant to all except the intolerant. They may have pushed things as far as they can go. If so, they have to live with it. Remember that in breaking down religion you are also breaking down the institutions that resisted any tolerance towards you, sometimes with extreme violence your very right to life itself. Remember also that religion is now very weak in most of the world it is seen as hypocricy, and carries the shame of child abuse that decency no longer allows it hide under is clerical garb. Yet another example of its institutional violence being visited on innocents.

FIXED

The release last week of the Report on Sexual Abuse in Dublin Diocese has shocked and horrified people. It should be made compulsory reading for Brian, who can see nothing wrong with religion.

"If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you."

Are you saying that it's religion that protects gay people from violence? If so then that is one massive FAIL.

"Everything you enjoy now is "dependent on the kindness of strangers" "

Soooo... you're claiming that homosexuals are third-class people not worthy of enjoying anything on their own, but only because you suffer to allow them such things?

DIAF.




No wait. FOADIAF.

"Don't push this too far, gay men. There's a reason why gay men were brutally repressed in every society until the Western Societies of the past 20 years"

Christianity got a stranglehold on such societies? You do know lesbians were repressed as well don't you?

"Everything you enjoy now is "dependent on the kindness of strangers" Stay tolerant to get tolerance. You may have pushed things as far as they can go. If so, live with it. If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you."

Actually with the way tides are turning, it seems people are starting to become more accepting of gays. It's you guys who are losing your bigoted stranglehold on society. It is you and other fundamentalist christians who are responsible for the suffering gays face. You should be grateful our country's principles of free speech allow you to preach christian fascism. Don't like it? North Korea has gulags complete with gas chambers for political prisoners. Perhaps you could do us all a favor and die in one.

I went on there and read the story and some of the messages.Apparently the only societies that protect gays are christian dominated ones.

Oh, I am so glad you told me about your peaceful religion. There have never been any abuses of gay people by Xian societies, have there?

Are you really so weak that you need a religion to tell you not to be violent and cannot trust yourself to be tolerant without a big sky fairy telling you what is right and wrong?

Actually, breaking down religion would bring PEACE, as RELIGION IS A DIRECT MOTIVATOR FOR ANTI-GAY VIOLENCE.

"If you break down religion you may also break down the institutions that restrain violence being visited on you."

Funny. I thought the reasoning behind the hatred towards the LGBT community was for religious reasons. I don't know, nor have read any accounts of Secular, Agnostic, or Atheist organizations hating gays.

Hey, fucktard.

I'm a straight chick, and if I see anyone beating or killing gay guys (or girls), I'm going to do whatever I have to do to stop it. WHATEVER. Do not think for one minute that all us straights are going to stand by and let you bully people any more.

Um, the Roman Empire treated gay men alright. So did ancient Greece. Both GREAT empires with a lot of awesome contributions to modern society.

Wow, Brian, you're an asshole. You sound like Marie Antoinette tossing table scraps to the peasants and telling them to eat cake.
